Firstly have you seen how marvoulous this bath bomb is? It looks incredible, I have never seen so many beautiful colours on a bath bomb all at the same time before.
This is another one of the legendary lush Oxford street exclusive products, although it has now been made known that it will be released in to all stores as of Friday (07/08/15)
This was a product that I was drawn to a soon as I walked through the doors of Oxford street , I think this is mainly due to its bright colours and be being drawn to anything fun and bright especially if it has pink in it (I’m a mega girly girl). The experimenter has a different coloured segments, each one being apparently a different scent (although I struggled to pick the different scents out). The colours featured are bright pink, gold, white , blue and purple.
I was so excited about trying this bath bomb out, it is a very large size so I new that it had great things in store. But although I was super excited about trying it I have been saying it for a special occasion as I felt it was to good to be used on just an average bath. Unfortunately that special occasion never turned up and in the end I gave in to my excitement and just had to try it out.
Scent wise I would say the experimenter has a very strong scent although I did struggle to pick out a specific smell. From researching the product I have found that it contains Vetiver oil which is quite a strong earthy/ smoky scent, this has also been combined with tonka and vinilla which add sweetness to thing array of scents and wonder. I found that this scent stuck to my body for hours after my bath which I loved as I tend to find that I can’t really smell the products anymore once they are all dissolved. I’m not sure if this is just me but the end scent really reminded me of Palma violets and brought back some great childhood memories.
Now the fun really start when it comes to popping this in the water! As soon as the experimenter hits the water, it starts to fizz away painting an array of swirls of colour all over the surface of the water. it is just magical to watch and I’m so glad that this bath bomb didn’t disappoint me when it came to its show in the water. The colours are so vivid and bright this is defiantly a bath bomb to help lift spirits and make you smile. Although the experimenter did dislove quite quickly, it really didn’t matter as it left such a beautiful bath behind. I was also surprised to find the the center of the product was filled with popping candy! This always creates a fun bathing experience and I feel that it was just perfect for this bath bomb.
Overall I was so impressed with the bath bomb and can’t wait to stock up on it. It’s only downfall (if you can really call it a downfall) is that once all the colours have been mixed together it leaves the water a very dark murky purple which isn’t the most appealing colour but I guess this is bound to happen when you mix such an array of colours together.
Price- £3.75 each
Top tip – to get the most out of this bath bomb, leave it whole and don’t chop it up.
